Boston University Basketball to Host First Game Requiring Both Teams Wear Masks


The Boston University men's and women's basketball teams opened their seasons on Monday wearing masks -- not just on the sidelines, but during their games.


Daman Tate had 28 points, nine rebounds and four steals for the BU men in their 83-76 victory at Holy Cross.


Back on BU's campus in Boston, Sydney Johnson scored 18 points to lead the Terriers women to a 76-54 win over Holy Cross with both teams wearing masks.


Although the NCAA has not mandated masks on the court, a few women's teams have worn them -- most prominently No.


Creighton coach Jim Flanery left it up to his players, and eight of 13 elected to mask up.


The Patriot League canceled all nonconference games before the season, leaving BU and Holy Cross with mostly local contests.
